Last night, around midnight, instead of being in bed with my petite nymphomaniac of a wife, I was up doing something incredibly nerdy. This thing I was busy working on was so mindbogglingly geeky, I’m not even going to tell you, gentle reader, what it was…
Alright, I admit it, I was creating a spreadsheet of the 46 types of wood used to make wands in the Harry Potter Universe. I was converting them over to the Hero Game System (5th Edition).
Anyway, in the middle of my very cerebral pursuits, Marvel dropped a teaser trailer for Doctor Strange.
New York twisted into a Ditko-esque nightmare? Tilda Swinton with a shaved head? Benedict Cumberbatch in full on snark mode? Suffice to say, I got a hard-on so fast and so intense, I nearly pulled a kidney loose.
Doctor Strange, Captain America and The Black Panther are the three Marvel heroes I have been most excited about seeing on the big screen. Captain America: The Winter Soldier has, without a doubt, been Marvel’s best film, to date. I have a feeling all three of these next offerings will be as good if not better. It’s a great time for an old comic book lover to be alive.
He also sings for the Supra-70s band, RIFLE.
